Welcome to Graduation!


Royal Holloway usually holds two graduation events every year, which take place in July and December. See below to find out more about our graduation ceremonies.

On 12 May, we released our ‘Save the Dates’ for our postponed Graduation Ceremonies.

In a normal year, Graduation Ceremonies need months of advance planning. The uncertainty about what restrictions may or may not be in place meant we had to take the difficult decision to set the dates for when we are confident that we can hold ceremonies on campus, in the same way the College has for generations.
